If you live in Western Washington, you can see how your doctor’s medical practice stacks up against 76 others in quality at the Puget Sound Health Alliance. The Alliance publishes a periodic Community Checkup report that shows which groups practice the best medicine for dozens of measures such as giving preventive screenings, diabetes and heart care, and access to care, among others.

Group Health Cooperative leads with the most top scores, followed by Virginia Mason Medical Center. I’m proud to work with both of these organizations. The Polyclinic comes in third. Jump to page 17 to see all the groups at a glance:
